Windows Mail has the best spam filter ever created. catches well over 99.9% of all spam.

Wrong title. this is for Vista's Windows Mail application, not for Outlook 2003.

"Does exactly what it says on the tin"
Brilliant. Blocks lots of SPAM.

now that I've fixed the missing cab file (apparently it sometimes get "removed" by SP2 - or so I read!) - this is highly recommended.

The only feature I'd like to see added is the ability to NOT download a whole email if it can flag it as spam (could it not just download the message headers and let me decide if I want to download it properly)
It seems a waste of bandwidth to download everything before filtering!

Works as advertised.
Now why give this a "1" when everyone else thinks it is great. Is it possible the missing "cab" is from a bad Installation on your part?

updated quite happily in the past, but this one won't install (complains about missing .cab file)

won't install via windows update either...

I think this is the first MS product that I've ever given a 5 to.

Now that you can get these updates automatically through the new version of Microsoft Update, it's even better.

Using this in conjunction with the open-source and very simple SpamBayes in Outlook 2003, I get almost ZERO spam and no false positives that I've ever found, and I check once a week.

They must improve:
1. Auto update.
2. Allow us to teach if something wrong, they must be able to make it better in the future.

I've always controlled its options through Actions menu > Junk E-mail > Junk E-mail Options. Perhaps the user who foolishly rated it a 1 should learn how to press F1 and use the Help option once in a while.
